A group of 28 retired and semi-retired travel agents and NTO chiefs from Singapore and Australia gathered for a reunion at the Singapore Cricket Club last week.
Several members even flew in from Australia, Bali and Hong Kong for this gathering to reminisce the memorable times and celebrate the friendship and camaraderie that remains since working together in the Lion City some 30 years ago.
The catch-up was initiated by Don Jolly, general manager of Global Tourism Solutions and former Asia director of then Queensland Tourist and Travel Corporation (now renamed Tourism and Events Queensland).
“When everyone’s ages were combined, the room held more than 2,000 years in terms of age,” quipped Robin Yap, chairman emeritus of The Travel Corporation Asia and who was among the attendees.
Other well-known industry figures in attendance include Robert Khoo, Peter Choo and Nick Koorey, among others.
